1) A notebook for recording my impressions of individual materials

2) A notebook for formula ideas

3) A notebook for formulas that I test out and my impressions of the formulas

4) A notebook for my calculations

I thought of using the computer for some of these things but I prefer to do it by hand. I'll have an idea (let's say idea A), which I'll write out in notebook 2). Then, when testing out the formula and recording impressions of idea A, I use up a bunch of pages in notebook 3). Then if I want to start working on another idea (idea B); I'll use up a bunch of pages in the same notebook - but when I want to back to idea A, I need to start after my idea B pages and it just feels messy to me to flip through my pages back to A, and then start many pages later working again on A. Does anyone know what I mean? I'm not sure if I'm articulating this well. But anyways, I would so appreciate any ideas on organising ideas, impressions and formulae! Or maybe this is just a messy hobby and I have to accept that!
